SORT BY Relevancy
Not many people are criticizing Kevin Durant for quitting Team USA nearly two weeks after the team began training camp, but I am an exception. I thought it was a poor choice by a guy who let down his national team coach and teammates -- even if the majority of folks want to give him a pass.
But as we look closer at Durant's decision, it raises some questions. Is he getting bad advice from Jay Z and Roc Nation, who represent him?
Is sneaker money more important than keeping your word to your coach and teammates?
And is Roc Nation making the right kinds of endorsement deals for Durant, who is negotiationg with UnderArmour and adidas as he ponders leaving Nike.
My answers in this interview with Marc Daniels, host of "The Beat of Sports" on 740-The Game in Orlando.
1A- Tony Stewart kills Kevin Ward jr. Was this an accident???
2A- The NCAA and the Ed O'Bannon case. Where will this lead the NCAA and collegiate athletes, will they finally be paid fair and equally??
3A- NY Mets- Bobby Abreu and Chris Young are designated for reassignment. Relief Pitcher Jenry Meija admits he has been playing injured. Matt den Dekker, Kris Nieuwenhuis and Wilmer Flores have all been called up and will be given lots of playing time as we enter the end of the baseball season.
4A- Brooklyn's Danny Jacobs beats Jarrod Fletcher for middleweight WBA title and calls out Peter Quilian aka "Kid Chocolate".
4B- Lamont Peterson TKO's Edgar Santana in the 10 round for the IBK jr. 140 welter belt.
4C- Danny "Swift" Garcia KO's Rod Salka in the 2nd round.
5A- NY Jets suffer major injuries to their Secondary. How will this affect their season?
6A- Which combo of HOF players would make the perfect team??
6B- Kevin Durant quits Team USA and is replaced by Rudy Gay. Is Team USA a team to beat??
6C- Cleveland Cavs trade Andrew Wiggins to the Minnesota Timberwolves for kevin Love? Does Cleveland have a big 3 with LBJ, Irving and Love?? Will Wiggins thrive in Minnesota??
Doesn't Clay Bennett's family own the Oklahoman?
I believe that is the case.
But whatever the case, that was a low blow by the newspaper this morning printing a front page headline that read: "Mr. Unreliable."
I have a headline for Scott Brooks and his strategy in Game 5, which you can hear in this podcast with WHBQsports56 in Memphis. I think you will like it. The hosts, Greg and Eli, loved it.
And as far as the Durant headline goes, there is a corollary to be drawn to a story that appeared in the Orlando Sentinel in July, 1996. It helped lead to the departure of Shaquille O'Neal from Central Florida.
More on that, and what it might mean regarding KD's future (Lakers?) in this podcast. Enjoy.

The Mariners are doing pretty well so far with a 4-2 record. Kevin Durant makes it 41 games straight with 25 or more points, passing Michael Jordan's 40-game streak. That makes Durant's streak the longest in the last 30 years.
As usual, we'll discuss other sports topics that are trending online and in the national media. Of course, we'll also have Seattle-related topics since we're broadcasting from Washington!

Join us today and hear why we need to stand and fight against these false concepts
Our Broadcast today will focus on a woman in love with her husband. She was seventeen when they got married at the justice of The Peace. Rev. Lillie Mae Ragland loved beyond measure, and when her husband John passed away, the love did not stop. There was a simple little connection that kept the two of them tied to each other. It was so important that she wrote about it in her upcoming book, THE STORY OF THE DIMES. This Autobiography will show what true love is and what it can do. Tune in and hear the juicy parts, but prepare yourself to read the book. It will be available on December 1, 2014, and you will love every page.
So What's teh problem...The Congress is fighting against the war on Climate Change. They say there is nothing that validates these concerns, and at the same time they each say that they are not scientists. George W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan both funded climate change measures. There was no uproar. Join us in our program, as we discuss....How James Inhofe used a 2012 video to speak out against a United Nations slush fund that would redistribute over $100 billion from developing countries to developing countries. There will surely be a political problem for the GOP in 2016 if we fail to define what we stand for on the environment.
Our Program today willl speak on Gentrification in our communities and how we have to band together to keep from being forced out of our homes and apartments. We will also discuss the conflict the president is facing in this upcoming battle with ISIS. It goes without saying that the GOP Congress will do all they can to defeat his plans even at the sake of losing the war.
